| Foreward/Intro [A300]                                                       |

Hello, and welcome to the world of Pokemon... with... warlords? [Oda] Nobunaga?
A Feudal Japan-like land? Conquest and domination of an entire region? Sweet!
Sounds like a good time! Ah, I didn't notice you there! I was just practicing
my opening speech for this FAQ right here. You know, trying to make it sound
awesome and all. But now that that's over and done with, I'd like to say a few
words about the game and the effect it had on me (for real this time).

What can I say? When I first heard of this game, I was just like "Meh, another
Pokemon themed game again? Sorry, but the other ones kind of let me down. I bet
this one will be just as boring." A legitimate thing for a critical gamer to
think when it comes to what he will and won't be willing to buy, right? But
just before its release date, some friend of mine who follows anything and
everything related to Pokemon quite closely told me that it was going to be a
tactics type of game. Let me tell you, that caught my interest enough to just
pay at least some attention. Then, upon release, I went to the local game store
to just ask the salesman a few questions about it. He told me it was supposed
to be some kind of Final Fantasy Tactics/Pokemon mixture game. With FFT being
my #1 favorite game of all time, I just HAD to get this game now! I had to

In all fairness, going into the game with the expectations I originally had,
it's only reasonable to say that I was let down... severely. BUT, given the
basic quality of the game in and of itself, it was still a fairly decent play.
While I felt that that music was somewhat awful, and the story and back-story
were just plain garbage, the gameplay system itself was still pretty dang good,
although not even similar to FFT quality level. Even so, on just the gameplay
alone, I got sucked in for a good 145+ game hours (being the completionist that
I am), and I'm probably going to dabble in it a bit more still, for gallery
completion purposes, wireless battles, wi-fi events, and stuff like that. Gotta
keep on top of this FAQ after all, as well as follow the series that is likely
to follow this game. Normally I avoid sequel media, as they are usually just
reguritations of the less glorious aspects of the originals, but this original
feels like it has potential. Kind of like that Mega Man Battle Network series
for the GBA. Number one might have been a bit dry (somewhat like this game
was), but it led to number three, which is one of the best games out there.

Anyway, enough of this cynic's boring-as-reading-the-dictionary analysis of how
the game made him feel, and on to the walkthrough, right? Just take my advice
and watch this series closely. I have a feeling it could become big if properly
improved upon!


||                             SECTION B - The Game                          ||

| Game Controls Overview [B100]                                               |

The game controls are relatively simple, and self-explanatory for the most
part, so I won't get into too much detail about how the controls work. Most
people will probably skip this chapter anyway.

D-pad(/Joystik) (for 3DS Joystik users) - The directional controls in the game.
The relationship in which they work is exactly as it appears on-screen in your
game. On the world view map, it works by a free roam style, meaning diagonals,
circles, and all other complex types of directional inputs are possible. On the
in-batte maps, everything is divided up into square-shaped spaces. Your
directional controls navigate these spaces in one straight direction at a time,
one space per directional input. In many instances, holding down your
directional input will activate an "autoscroll" movement for your cursor until
you release the button. Quite handy when dealing with units all over different
areas of the map.

A Button - The basic action button for the game. Used to select your many
different possible choices in the game, and used to confirm them.

B Button - The "back" button, if you will. This button generally serves as the
opposite meaning to the A Button, and is a good way to deselect, undo, cancel,
and otherwise unconfirm the selections you have made with the A Button. Not all
choices can be undone once made though, in this game. Make your choices with
extreme deliberation and thought before finalizing them.

X Button - As far as I know, there is only one use for this button in the
entire game, and that is to end your turn from either one of the Battle Maps,
or from the World View map. This is pretty much the only use you will ever need
to know. There is another function it provides in the "Gallery" of the game,
and that is to view "Perfect Link"s from the Warrior Gallery, and "Habitat"s
from the Pokemon Gallery. Almost a useless function.

Y Button - Probably the least important or second-least important button in the
game. On the World View map, it opens up the "Lists" menu, in the Equip view,
it was the "Remove Item" button, in the Gallery it serves as the "Change Order"
function, and in the Warrior Gallery it serves as a "Change Emotion View" type
of function. It is useful, however, as a map rotator button in Battle Maps. I
never once used this button myself in the game, except for the "Remove Item"
action, and as a map rotator. It was so unimportant, using the touchscreen felt
more natural than pushing the button.

Start Button - A somewhat gimmicky button. I can only remember its only use
being to open "The Menu", which was a rare thing to do anyway. I preferred
using the touchscreen over this button, but then again, I am using a 3DS. 3DS
Start and Select buttons are just plain weird to use anyway, being right next
to a button that can effectively make you quit your current game.

Select Button - About as unimportant as the Y button. Used in only a few of the
menus in the game, and as far as I can remember, its only function was to
rearrange the orders of the lists in your menus (and only temporarily). Yet
despite this, I still used the button. Probably because it often has to be used
in succession until you get the right list order you want. Hitting a single
button rapidly is much easier than tapping the touchscreen multiple times,
after all.

L & R Buttons - Serve the same function as each other: to scroll through the
information in certain menus and lists. L scrolls to what can be seen on the
top-left corner of whatever is on that screen, and R scrolls to whatever is
seen on the top-right corner of said screen. In closed menus, when you reach
the end of scrollable information in one direction, pressing the scrolling
button in that direction again WILL loop you to the entirely opposite side of
whatever list you're looking at. In other words, it DOES loop. Very convenient,
if you ask me. I used my L and R buttons a lot, a lot, a lot in this game,
although my L Button likes to not freaking work sometimes, so I often had to
use the touchscreen as well. I have also not tried using L and R on a Battle
Map, but I would imagine there's a 50/50 chance it might scroll through your
troops in listing order. That would be cool. Someone try it and let me know, if
you really want to.

The Touchscreen - It is possible to use the touchscreen for literally every
function in this game, except one. That function is: Scrolling to places you 
annot already see in Battle Maps and the World View Map. You'll need the
D-pad/Joystik for that. I might have forgotten another exception or two to this
rule, but I think I pretty much nailed it on the head here. The touchscreen is
practically universally useful as a substitute for nearly ANY button. It can
even be used to pass through dialogue! Very handy.

| The Main Plot [B200]                                                        |

According to the game, there are 17 kingdoms in the region of Ransei, and
legend has it that if one individual were to conquer and control all 17
kingdoms, a legendary pokemon would appear to that individual. Okay, I guess
that's a pretty basic setup there. Each kingdom is ruled by a "Warlord" that
governs its people and military. Each kingdom also basically specializes in one
of the 17 Pokemon types found in the Pokemon game series. As you might imagine,
each kingdom's Warlord's best pokemon is one of his kingdom's specialty type.
Warlords and "warriors" (like the military underlings to Warlords) each have a
Pokemon they use for battle.

A Warlord/warrior can only use one Pokemon each in every battle they take part
in, but they can OWN more than one. This gives you some options at times. For
example, if your warrior owns both one Poison type Pokemon and one Fighting
type Pokemon, and you're about to go into battle against people with Steel type
Pokemon, you're going to want your warrior to bring his Fighting type, even if
it's not as strong as his Poison type. Why? Well, aside from the fact of type
advantages, in this game, your Pokemon each only know ONE move at a time.
Usually of the same type they are. In other words, taking a Pokemon into battle
against Steel types when it only knows a Poison type move is a good way to make
that warrior and his Pokemon USELESS to you.

Each Pokemon owned by a Warlord/warrior is referred to as a "partner Pokemon".
Every Warlord/warrior has at least one to begin with, but can "form a Link
with" (catch) more, according to that Warlord's/warrior's capacity. If you
reach your capacity you can still Link with more Pokemon, but each new Link you
make will require you to release one of that Warlord's/warrior's previous
partner Pokemon to make room. With these Warlords/warriors and their partner
Pokemon, you can go to battle against other kingdoms to conquer them, and when
certain criteria is met, even recruit members of the opposing army after you
win. Each kingdom has a cpacity of six Warlords/warriors, so to expand your
army size, you're going to need to conquer other kingdoms to give yourself the
room. If you reach your limit and try to recruit new Warlords/warriors, you'll
either have to give up on the new recruits, and/or replace old
Warlords/warriors with the new ones.

As you might have guessed, the main object of this game is to be the one to
use these Warlords/warriors and their parter Pokemon to conquer all 17 kingdoms
in the region. As a part of the story, your motivation to do so it to pre-empt
another Warlord (Nobunaga) in his own goal to do so. According to the game, he
plans to make the legendary Pokemon appear before him so he can use it to
destroy the region. A fairly silly notion, if you ask me, since he would then
already OWN that region. Owning something is almost always better than
destroying it because you can't have it. Know what I mean? Yeah, the plot was
not really thought over very carefully. But anyhow, the main object of the game
is where the fun is at anyway, so moving on.

For those of you either unfamiliar with the Pokemon types in the franchise,
and/or the matchups to each kingdom in the region for each type, I'll list them

Aurora - Normal type. (Also the starting kingdom for the main character.)
Ignis - Fire type. Warlord: Hideyoshi - Male
Greenleaf - Grass type. Warlord: Motonari - Male
Fontaine - Water type. Warlord: Motochika - Male
Violight - Electric type. Warlord: Ginchiyo - Female
Chrysalia - Bug type. Warlord: Yoshimoto - Male
Pugilis - Fighting type. Warlord: Yoshihiro - Male
Illusio - Psychic type. Warlord: Kenshin - Male
Terrera - Ground type. Warlord: Shingen - Male
Cragspur - Rock type. Warlord: Ujiyasu - Male
Yaksha - Dark type. Warlord: Kotaro - Male
Viperia - Poison type. Warlord: Nene - Female
Avia - Flying type. Warlord: Masamune - Male
Spectra - Ghost type. Warlord: No - Female
Valora - Steel type. Warlord: Ieyasu - Male
Nixtorm - Ice type. Warlord: Mitsuhide - Male
Dragnor - Dragon type. Warlord: Nobunaga - Male (This is the main antagonist.)

It might look either extra complex, or extra short to some of you right now,
but this is a pretty balanced amount for this game. These kingdoms, with the
exception of your starting one in the story (Aurora) are all the ones you have
to conquer before Nobunaga conquers them all. In actuality though, you don't
really learn much of Nobunaga and his plan to conquer the region until halfway
through your conquest of the region. And furthermore, it's not very likely that
you can even actually LOSE. The game is heavily in your favor from the start.
In fact, I don't personally think that it IS possible to lose the game. Kind of
a letdown there if you ask me.

At the very beginning of the game, you will be prompted to choose a gender and
a name for your main character. The stage will then become set by showing a
relatively short cinematic of you finding an Eevee as a child and forming a
link with it. That's right, you get to start out with what is possibly the most
awesome Pokemon to ever be created!
